The provisions of this article shall apply to all lots created as part of realty subdivisions for which plans for the construction of a road or roads to be offered for dedication to the Town are approved in accordance with these Town highway specifications.
A. 
Road completion requirements. A building permit for the construction of a structure on a lot having frontage on a road which is to be constructed and offered to the Town for dedication, but which road has not been formally accepted by the Town, shall be issued after road construction has been satisfactorily completed, with the exception of the curbing and the final course of the wearing surface of the pavement, so as to provide access from an existing Town, state or county road, up to and including the entire road onto which the lot in question fronts. The Town Engineer and the Town Superintendent of Highways shall be the judges of completion under this provision.
B. 
Plot plan requirements.
(1) 
All lots must have preliminary plot plans furnished to the Building Inspector, indicating house location, septic system location, well location or curb cock, driveway location, contours and drainage flow pattern. Plot plans must be reviewed and accepted by the Town Engineer before approval of the Building Inspector is given.
(2) 
No house is to be built where the lowest openings (windows, doors, garage doors, crawl spaces, etc.) are lower than two feet above the road surface, unless approved by the Town Engineer.
(3) 
All preliminary plot plans must be prepared and stamped by a New York State licensed professional engineer or land surveyor.
(4) 
If the proposed regarding of any lot causes drainage to cross onto lands of other properties, permission must be obtained, in writing, from said property owner or owners. The final destination of any surface water must be indicated (i.e., natural streams, stormwater systems, dry wells, etc.). Dry wells will only be acceptable if percolation tests and design are certified by a licensed engineer.
Before a certificate of occupancy is issued, a final certified plot plan bearing the stamp and signature of a licensed professional engineer or land surveyor must be furnished to the Building Inspector for his review. The plot plan must be accepted and approved prior to issuance of the certificate of occupancy.
